? >>> there is word that moammar gadhafi wants to trick journalists that innocent civilians have been killed. u.s. officials say that gadhafi was not the target of a missile. he wants bodies removed from morgues and put at the site of the bombing to make it look like innocent people were killed. military officials say they have made significant progress. they believe the attacks against his own people have all but stopped and air defense batteries have been destroyed. on air force one, secretary robert gates says the united states will not be leading the charge for long. >> we expected in a matter of days to be able to turn over the primary responsibility to others. we will continue to support the coalition. we will be a member of the coalition and have a military role in the coalition but not the preeminent role. >> jim is joining us live from tr tripoli. what are we hearing about these plans that moammar gadhafi -- what is happening with these bodies? >> reporter: right. the plan to move these bodies from morgue into bomb sites and then bring foreign journalists like us to report on that beefed

us yesterday, it may be hard to understand why someone would jump off a cliff unless you understand they're being chased by a tiger. and that tiger is the tea party. in other words the gop is jumping off the political cliff right now and the tea party is that tiger chasing behind it. the latest example, a tea party leader calling for john boehner's defeat because he won't support the tea party's also after newt resigned after leading his party to a disaster after being reprimanded himself after being nominated on the family values republican party ticket? we'll find out. newt gingrich all but made it official today. on the subject of sex scandals, more evidence is surfacing that it could lead to an indictment for john edwards, misusing campaign funds or, in fact, using funds as -- that should have been a campaign contribution. finally, let me finish with the un-american effort on the right to convince people that president obama is somehow un-american. first of all i want to get the facts. here's radio talk show host ben fischer. let's listen. >> you seem to think there's some valid

think the president needs to understand one of the things that gets us all fired up and gets us in congress, in a place that we can defend the things we care about is that he leads us and that's what we're asking him to do more of. >> i couldn't agree more with that. thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> i want to thank everybody for watching. "hardball" starts right now. >>> escape from japan. and heading to libya. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. happy st. patrick's day. leading off tonight, high anxiety. there's finally good news out of japan. the international atomic energy agency reports there is now electrical power in place and water is being pumped in lowering the pressure inside those reactors. this news comes after authorities were reduced to dumping water from helicopters and spraying water from fire trucks in a last-ditch effort to cool those spent fuel rods. in a moment, we'll hear from a ann curry on the ground and a commissioner and get a report from the ground in japan. >>> also, credibility gap. the widening

ousted. without that being met, i have to again ask why in the world will our military might be used according to the u.n. and arab league desires and nato's leadership in this skirmish or this war or whatever it is that obama calls it or doesn't want to call it. >> greta: usually on speeches like this, there are two purposes. one substantively to explain to the american people why we are doing the military action, whatever. the other to inspire us to feel proud of what we are doing and this is the right decision. i thought tonight that he felt -- that he had a flat delivery. that he lost the inspiration part. so it was hard to be convinced of the substantive purpose part. >> well, he did not articulate what our purpose was. except some inconsistent humanitarian effort in libya. yet, the inconsistency lies with the questions now being asked, why not darfur, north korea? what are we going to do about syria? all these other areas where i guess america could intervene with our power and resources to help humanity. not make the case for this intervention. u.s. interests have to be met if
for being with us. >> a lot to cover this morning. in japan, the number of dead and the level of fear are rising fast. here are the latest developments in what is likely to be the costliest natural disaster the world has ever witnessed. more than 3,700 have been killed. close to 8,000 people are missing following friday's 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami. >> japanese officials fear it may have been caused by a breach in the containment vessel of reactor number three. officials are now bringing in helicopters to drop water into a cooling pond through the damaged roof of the reactor hoping to slow or stop any meltdowns. >>> for several hours last night, things grew so tense at the power plant, work was suspended and everyone there was told to evacuate. now, they've now returned to the facility. let's go to senior international correspondent stan grant live in tokyo with us this morning. they told everyone to leave and now they're back working again furiously to get the situation under control. >> reporter: yeah, absolutely, christine. the story today has been radiation. these worker
traffic control procedures. u.s. transportation secretary ray lahood calling for at least two air traffic controllers now to man overnight shifts. this after a controller at d.c.'s reagan national airport reportedly fell asleep and two planes couldn't get in touch with the tower after mid night just trying to land. both had to go in for a landing on their own. toes your headlines. >> five hour energy ran out and two planes had to do their own thing. >> i'm sure nothing's down there on the runway. let's cross our fingers. let's talk a little bit about what's going on right now. in libya, new video just in, one of qaddafi's bases reportedly destroyed by u.s. coalition air strikes. look at these pictures, showing a flaming wreckage overnight and qaddafi's compound in tripoli also reportedly targeted again and was struck. the commander of britain's royal air force says libya's air force no longer exists. >> so now that we also have an exclusive story that came to us, i think james rosen and jennifer griffin working on this together. essentially, there might be some break as we try to find o
